Under the Xmas tree so delicate and small
You could barely see her between the big presents as she gingerly crawled
Not knowing this was a special day, not only for her but for us all
Daddy's first born was mesmerized, by all the colorful packages, so pretty and tall
One by one she pushed them, and watched them tumble and fall
Laughing out loud, this little girl was just having a ball
Her daddy watching and laughing, taking pictures while he hid in the hall
Taking precious pictures of his first born first Xmas, for us all to be able to recall
Mommy hands daddy's little girl her first present and tried to show her how to get it unwrapped
At first, she just smiles and watches, because she thought this has to be a trap
Because, all the times before, when she tore open a box she heard the words," stop it, you little rat"
With an I'm innocent look; she looks at me like, "hey daddy", you and mommy need to have a little chat
Once coached on how to tear open the bright pretty box
This little rascal opened them all, like an old skillful, gray fox
She never stopped, until she came to my new pair of navy blue socks
She test tasted them, but by the look on her face, they must have tasted, like a dirty rock
After she had them all opened, she didn't know quite what to do
So she started playing, with her mothers worn out pair of blue house shoes
I handed her a new doll, shaped like a baby kitty cat
But her favorite first Xmas toy, was her mothers old, worn out brown hat.
My next best Xmas, was after my second child was born
I recall it well, that's when my wife must have lost her mind, by buying our first born, her first musical horn
Now, who would even thought, a six-month-old child, would know how, not to share
The more we tried to make her, the more she showed us, she didn't really care
This holiday is the celebration of Jesus first born day
But please, don't forget about all your glorious past holidays
They all are special, in their own unique way
And that is all; this 1man has to say...
Happy Holidays ... Peace Be Still ... 1manview ...
